Supplemental Final Environmental Impact Statement and Section 4(f) Evaluation

December, 2000

The Supplemental Final Environmental Impact Statement and Section 4(f) Evaluation (1996 FEIS) discloses additional information related to implementing the Tollroad/Freeway Alternative. The proposed highway will improve access and mobility for local and regional travel by providing a connection between I-55 and I-80 to serve as a principal link in a bypass route around the Chicago metropolitan area. It will also provide a safe, efficient and balanced transportation facility consistent with the adopted 2020 Regional Transportation Plan and the land use and transportation plans of the project corridor local governments. Important issues included impacts related to land use, noise, air quality, Section 4(f), Section 6(f), Section 106 and wetland impacts.

The document will be available for review on IDOTís web site until May 30, 2001.
